Ferodo sponsored the Bathurst Race back in the day actually can't be too shabby at all.

Which ones?

Which flavour of Ferodo's are you using?

The old Ferodo Zero's are an absolute pile of c**p!! Try any more than one or two stops from speed and you'll be looking for an anchor to throw out the window! (But what can you expect for $35!!)

The DS2500's seem to give really good cold response & bite, and hang in there at waaaay hot temps. Last time I checked they were a bot over $200 for a front set (not sure about sets for a VL though).

The DS3000's were used by a few WRC teams, but I've heard they are a 'real' race pad, with not much response when cold. Last quote was about $350 a set...
